Stockholm School of Economics

: Stockholm, Sweden
Year established: 1909
Student population: 2,000
Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is one of Europe’s leading business schools. It is mostly privately owned but receives around 22 percent of its funding from the Swedish government. It has been ranked by the Financial Times as the number one business school in the Nordic and Baltic countries and is a member of prestigious CEMS network.
In 1999, SSE became fully accredited with EQUIS, as the first university in Sweden, certifying that all its main activities, including research and teaching, are of the highest international standard. It also has close ties to the business community, giving students the opportunity to regularly meet with companies and business leaders.
Unique Characteristics
SEE offers a full range of undergraduate programs aiming to qualify graduates for interesting jobs. SSE carries out a placement report every year on career opportunities. In 2013, it showed that 87 percent of graduates from the MSc program had jobs within three months of graduation.
Stockholm is one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world, with blue skies all summer and ground covered with snow during winter. It is one of the friendliest cities in the world and although Swedish is its official language, most people speak English.

Student Experiences

Aisling Railton
Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies), Semester 1, 2016
Host City Highlights
Great city to walk around in with trendy restaurants and shops.
Uni Life
Plenty of clubs and societies to join however can be difficult to get to know local students (easier to meet other exchange students) and the school is very small in comparison to USYD.
Intimate classes, similar assessment structure to USYD, great lecturers and interesting courses.
"Fika" is a huge tradition in Sweden which vaguely translates to "coffee break with friends", so there are a lot of cafes with great pastries (the Cinnamon Buns are amazing) and 'Meatballs for the People' is a great restaurant serving traditional Swedish meatballs.
There were about three options - the best location wise is Saltmatargatan ("Saltis"). Lappis is a bigger housing area however not all of the students are from SSE and it is not as well located as Saltis.
Money Matters
Sweden is very expensive - my budget was around $15,000 and I was able to do a fair amount of travelling with that money but I was always cautious due to the expensive nature of Swedish living.
Getting Around
Really easy to work out as quite small and simple, relatively affordable. It's a smallish city however so I barely used public transport as I preferred to walk.
The Swedish Laplands are a must see - the school arranges a trip up there where you can go dog sledding, see the Ice Hotel and see the Northern Lights. There are also very cheap cruises that can take you from Stockholm to Riga (Latvia), Tallinn (Estonia) and Helsinki (Finland) for a day and you sleep on the boat at night which was different and practical on a student budget.
Top Tips
Make sure you have enough money saved up so that you can enjoy all aspects of Swedish life, and be prepared for very cold winters and mild summers as well as extreme darkness in Winter and midnight sun in summer.
